John Oliver Is Zazu in Disney's Lion King Live-Action Remake

11 July 2017 11:03 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

John Oliver, the host of HBO's popular weekly series Last Week Tonight, has become the latest to join the talented voice cast for Disney's live-action Lion King reboot. The actor will be lending his voice to Zazu, the colorful bird who serves as an adviser to King Mufasa (James Earl Jones). In the original 1994 animated classic, Zazu was voiced by Mr. Bean star Rowan Atkinson, with Jeff Bennett voicing the character in the new animated series The Lion Guard.

The Wrap broke the news of this casting, which comes just a few months after Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner signed on to voice Pumbaa and Timon, respectively. Director Jon Favreau will utilize the same type of technology that brought the photo-realistic animals to life in the filmmaker's 2016 blockbuster The Jungle Book. John Oliver also joins Donald Glover as Simba and the iconic James Earl Jones, reprising his voice role as »

Why Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner Are the Best Indie Producers in the World Right Now

10 July 2017 9:36 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Working Title producers Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, whose latest hit is Edgar Wright’s wheel-and-disc-spinning breakout “Baby Driver” (June 28, Sony), which has tracked $64 million worldwide to date.

Bottom Line: This brainy duo with plummy British accents have been turning out a consistent slate of smart global hits since the ’80s. The London-based co-chairmen of Working Title boast the best taste in the business. They chase mainstream quality fare. That’s their gig. But even so over the years, partnering with Universal Pictures, with freedom to greenlight movies up to $35 million, their films have grossed an impressive almost $7 billion dollars worldwide.

Career Peaks: From the start, Working Title founder Tim Bevan gravitated to local stories with global potential like “My Beautiful Laundrette,” Stephen Frears’ searing »

Will Rowan Atkinson return as Mr. Bean for a new movie?

25 April 2017 4:43 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Rowan Atkinson is reportedly looking at bringing one of his famous characters back to the big screen. Well, maybe. This originates from the pages of the Daily Star in the UK. The newspaper reports that Atkinson, currently playing the role of Maigret on television, has reportedly said that he may like to play Mr. Bean as an older gentleman in a new film.

Love, Actually and Notting Hill writer has reportedly come up with a “very funny” idea featuring Bean for a future project – as an old aged pensioner.

“It would be very funny to see where we can go with him as an old man and what kind of comedy we get out of it,” Atkinson told the outlet.

“Playing an old person can be very funny.”

That’s all we know at this stage but it would be good to see the character back on our screens. Atkinson »

People are Photoshopping Mr. Bean Into Stuff and It’s Pretty Funny

28 March 2017 4:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

When you really think about it, Rowan Atkinson’s Mr. Bean is one of the most impressive comedic acts we’ve ever seen.  Honestly I stand by that remark.  The reason is because the character barely, if ever speaks.  Do you realize how hard it is to make people hysterical just from physical comedy and/or actions that don’t require speech?  Think about it.  Are there any other acts out there like it?  Nope.  And you can get it’s been tried.  Mr. Bean is his own world and people love being a part of it. There are actually rumors that he may return,

You know, I've met a number of people in my day who are ashamed to admit that they enjoy the rubber-faced antics of comedian Rowan Atkinson's Mr. Bean. I mean, I kind of get it, but you should never have to hide your affinity for whatever entertainment you enjoy. Although, it might behoove you to keep that folder you've got buried deep within your hard drive filled with obscure porn a... Read More »

Mr. Bean is a Lunatic

16 March 2017 7:06 AM, PDT | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

I’ve written about “Mr. Bean” quite a few times here on Bloody. There’s a weird horror element to the HBO series starring Rowan Atkinson, which ran between January 1990 and December 1995. He’s a goddamn lunatic on the edge of insanity, which is the charm behind the enigmatic character. Someone else apparently felt the same way, cutting footage together […] »

15 February 2017 10:20 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Since premiering in 2003, Love Actually has spawned a loyal and dedicated fanbase (as well as quite a few haters), who should probably sit down before reading any further because it's getting a sequel! Well, sort of. The ensemble rom-com's director, Richard Curtis, has penned a 10-minute-long short film in honor of Comic Relief's Red Nose Day telethon that will check in with the film's beloved characters 14 years after the events of the first movie. The short, titled Red Nose Day Actually, boasts not only Curtis, but also much of the original cast: Andrew Lincoln, Hugh Grant, Martine McCutcheon, Keira Knightley, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Bill Nighy, and more. "Over the years I've enjoyed doing Red Nose Day specials of TV things I've worked on - Blackadder, The Vicar of Dibley and Mr. Bean," Curtis said. "It seemed like a fun idea this year to do a special sketch based one of my films, »

Top 20 New Year TV episodes

1 January 2017 11:49 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Wesley Mead Jan 2, 2017

As the New Year arrives, we salute a few favourite TV episodes depicting this momentous time of year...

New Year is a time for reflection on the past and resolution for the future, an opportunity to consider what you’ve achieved and what you’re yet to work on. It’s also a time to stay up well past midnight, partying the night away with friends and family, potentially embarrassing yourself in the process. That dichotomy ensures that the New Year is fertile ground for television, and the finest comedies and dramatic series use the moment to allow for contemplation amidst the alcoholic excesses. Here are twenty New Year episodes that offer an entertaining take on the aeons-old celebration - from emotional character pieces to geeky genre takes and old-fashioned barrages of seasonal comedy.
